This luxury retreat in the Santa Monica Mountains is focused on exercise, nutrition, and a tech disconnect from everyday life. Ten hours of daily exercise, mostly hiking, is mandatory during the week-long stay, along with a regiment of yoga, stretching, and toning. Fortunately, you’re rewarded each night with a restorative massage (you earned it!). Food is organic and vegan, with many ingredients sourced from the on-site farm. Alcohol, caffeine, and processed sugars are off-limits, so are cell phones and the Internet, though guests have daily access to a communication center. Each of the 16 weekly guests has a private room, decorated in earthy brown and beige against white, with floors and furniture made from painter's scaffolding.

Room to Book:

Stay in one of the Haile or Indie rooms at the bottom of the hill—you’ll sculpt your legs just walking to classes and meals.

Insider Tip:

A month prior to visiting the ranch you will be instructed to wean yourself from caffeine, alcohol, sweets, and meat, plus physically prepare with daily exercise.
